WINDOWS PROJECT, a celebration of Cheshire Artists

Ball & Socket Arts is kicking off the transformation of factory to art center with a community centered “Windows Project.” The goal is to replace the boarded up windows on the red building along Willow St. with art. We are celebrating the artists of Cheshire with this project, turning one of our buildings into an open air art gallery.

There are 58 windows on the building. The 27 windows on the Willow St side will be dedicated to notable Cheshire artists in history. The 6 windows facing West Main St will become a community executed public art project lead by Cheshire artist, Tony Falcone.

The 26 windows on the courtyard ...side will showcase the works of our jury-selected winners. From the winning entries, Ball & Socket Arts will create digital prints that can withstand weather conditions. A percentage of spots will be reserved for young artists and senior citizen artists.

Presented by the Cheshire Land Trust at its historic Ives Farm, 1585 Cheshire St., the farm’s iconic red barn is the perfect spot for a summer picnic with family and friends. 

Headliner Violent Mae, 2016 CT Music Award “Best Indie Band” and “Best Album” winner with singer, songwriter Becky Kessler. Mother Jones magazine says Kessler, “... has a voice deserving of your undivided attention.”  

Also in the line-up Michael Hunton, coming off his 2016 release, “Catch That Train,” recorded and mixed in New Haven. The New Haven County artist’s album is dubbed as “an album for the traveler, the nomad, the journeyman - the sound is cut to its core - instrument, vocals, and soul.”
